I recently picked up a lamp, I think its a 118. I was wondering, has anyone ever tried to install a burner assembly from a lantern onto one off these to make a Frankie? I want something BIG at camp so it sits on a table well without the worry of it being overturned easily

This is a 242 burner assembly mounted on an Akron lamp fount with a 228 vent. If you want one it can be done, this lantern is burning as we speak.

I'm sitting on my porch listening to the crickets while this lantern is burning with a amber globe and enjoying a beer.  It doesn't get any better than this!

The Coleman lamps use a 1/8" NPT stem, so it's easiest to use a lantern head that also uses the 1/8" NPT threads., like those above.

Any Quicklite, 200 series and 242 series use these threads. So do lanterns from some other makers, like AGM. AGM heads can be a good way to go as the founts are so often cracked. AGMs tend to be loud, hot and bright and benefit from a larger fount.

You can either keep the stem fer a tall lamptern or remove it from the fount to use the female threads. If the lamp is Instant-lighting, it will have an FA tube inside the stem and you'll either have to use that for an Instant-lighting lamptern, or fabricate a pick-up tube for a Quicklite.

For a picnic table lamptern, there are generally two ways to go: Tall enough to put the mantles above your line of sight when sitting at the table, or low enough to be below your line of sight. For the low version, a 228 style vent is nice to keep the light low and not blind folks sitting at the table.

I'm working on this one today. The 228E vent has completely fallen apart so I've fitted it with one from a 228F. I don't like the bail not being able to clear the vent, so I'll be fitting it with the one from the 228F donor today.

This lamptern is no longer instant-lighting as it uses the stem of the Sunshine Safety as a PU tube.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

Thanks Timm, I have an old quicklite head I wanna put in. So I’ll have to make an FA tube to make that work? Did I understand you correctly? I’m mounting straight to the fount, not on the extended handle

For a Quicklite, all you need is a pick-up tube long enough to reach the bottom of the fount. It will require a quick pre-heat, like all Quickies. You should be able to screw the Quickie valve directly into the fount. If you want to use a collar, you may need to do some fiddling to get the valve at the right height.

Once you've determined the proper height of the valve, screw it into the fount, mark where the top of the fount bung hits the valve threads and remove it again. Use a stick or piece of wire to measure the depth of the fount below the bung, and compare it to the PU tube on the Quickie valve--that'll tell you how much, if any, you need to add to or subtract from the PU tube.

On my CQ Fount with the 228B head I removed the fuel stem which left an annoying steel clip rattling around which took two days of persistence to break apart small enough to get out. Then I soldered the bung off of the B fount onto the top of the lamp fount and the F/A tube was closed enough for me I left it.

On my quicklite head on CQ Fount I kept the original stem and cut it off flush (to prevent the steel clip problem) then threaded to match the valve threads. Doing this I didn't not need to alter the fuel pickup on the original quicklite valve. Both work great!
